Czechs, or Bohemians, were the earliest of the Slavic peoples to settle in Wisconsin, arriving in the 1850s and settling along Lake Michigan in Kewaunee and Manitowoc Counties and in Richland and La Crosse Counties. Some were would-be revolutionaries fleeing Austrian domination, but most were small farmers caught in the agricultural depression that affected most of Europe. Later arrivals established substantial Czech communities in Price, Taylor, and Langlade Counties, working in the lumber industry and establishing small farms in the cutover. By 1890, there were 12,000 Czechs in Wisconsin, mostly farmers or skilled craft workers. Czech settlers became known for their brass bands, and most communities had a large hall for dances, concerts, and meetings. Several towns in Manitowoc and Price Counties still host "Bohemian Days" where polka music and kolace (prune-filled pastry) celebrate their ethnic heritage.
